Following lunch, the Pope spends some time relaxing. Often he uses this break to play the piano. An accomplished amateur musician, Benedict XVI has his own baby-grand piano moved into the papal apartment. The Pope's musical preferences were made known to the world when the papal spokesman Joaquin Navarro-Valls, describing the summer vacation that he shared in the Italian Alps with the Pontiff and his brother, Msgr. Georg Ratzinger, said that he enjoyed the regimen of "Mozart every night."
I feel somehow insufficient.
